“Perfect destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We have recently returned from our second stay at this beautiful Riad. It was lovely to see Yassine, Monciff, Hanna & Rashida again who deliver the best service & constant consideration to their guests while in the Riad. The staff are always courteous, polite & willing to offer advice to to guests. There is a wonderful air of calm & tranquility within.The rooms are beautifully kept & have a real wow factor about them. The breakfasts cooked by Hanna are a delicious mix of breads & pastries, with freshly squeezed orange juice.There is a lovely relaxing plunge pool on the ground floor after sunbathing on the terrace.It is my most favorite holiday destination. I can't wait to return again................soon. Thank you all at Riad Bouganvilliers a little peace of heaven on earth.

Wow. We stayed at Riad Bouganvillers when we took our children on their first trip to Marrakech (age 8 & 6). It was the perfect place for us. Very central, we were able to dip in and out of the chaos of the medina, knowing we could always go back to the oasis with a pool and beautiful roof terrace. It is stylish, everything is greeted with a smile and nothing was too much to ask. A divine breakfast on in the sunshine on the terrace and a snooze in the shade when things got too hot. Beautiful place and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you - we will be back.

This oasis of calm is the perfect place to stay if you are planning a trip to central Marrakech. It is located 5 minutes walk away from jemaa el-fna square which is the heart of the medina. The staff here are amazing, super friendly and always willing to help in any way they can. They helped us by booking excursions, recommending restaurants and quite honestly our trip would not have been the same without them.

If you are considering booking this hotel then please do, you won't regret it, just listen to the reviewer above about asking the taxi driver to walk you here. When I heard this I was worried that it would be hard to find but after you get here and remember a few landmarks it's easy.

Lots of love to all who work here
Jenny and Claire

although quite difficult to find - this little riad is perfect for access to old Marrakesh. The staff are very obliging and the breakfasts were simple but nicely presented. The room was fine but we couldnt figure out the heating control on the first night so we were very cold! No instructions - nor for the safe and considering there are NO locks on the door you must use it! We really liked the rooftop for afternoon sunbathing and the amazing quiteness considering we were in the heart of the Medina. Would definately recommend this riad but bring warm clothes for nighttime - the temperature really drops at night!

A traditional riad that has been beautifully restored. Its rooms are different so don't expect an anonymous international box.
Its location is fantastic. Just off the main square and very close to the the miles of shopping alleys but make sure you get your taxi driver to walk you there otherwise you'll never find it as you will be dropped off around 150m away in a busy square.
The evenign meal they served was nice and traditional but we thought relatively expensive.

my wife n I stayed in Riad 'les bouganvilliers' for 5 nights. we had a great time and will definetly go back there next time . The riad is very well located,just 2 minutes walking from the famous square 'Jamee el Fna' and is an amazing escape from the noise of the souks as it's very quiet n relaxing...
the staff was great, especially Mr Youssef who is an amazing cook, his meals were the best we had while in Morocco. also he was a great help and very nice person. always available to help . and is very hardworking! cheers man
